I picked this up in France having heard one track on the radio, and have been listening to it repeatedly since then. It's a thoroughly fresh and surprising listen from start to finish.

Gainsbourg's voice is not a strident, confident and trained instrument, but her subtle, tender, and at times timid delivery is very engaging. She was apparently so nervous at times recording the album that she sang from beneath a sheet. She need not have worried.

The duo that form Air provide the soundtrack, while Jarvis Cocker and Neil Hannon provide the lyrics. All have excelled themselves: the melodies are gorgeous, at times swooping and exultant, at times minimal and delicate; the lyrics are subtle and beguiling.

From first listening it struck me that this album is one of those collaborations that rarely comes along, which is pure magic. The chemistry between the collaborators was obviously just right, and has resulted in a fine creation.

Atmospheric, timeless and mesmerizing. Reminds me of "Serge Gainsbourg", Mick Harvey, Anita Lane and Tindersticks...Buy it now!!!

Just a gorgeous album, uplifting and lipchewing at the same time, perfect bright pop with cool shadows, like Air's 'You Make It Easy'(must admit, I prefer this to most of their own releases even) or St Etienne's lovelier moments. Try to hear some samples, try to hear the whole album. It's lovely lovely stuff.

I came across this searching for stuff from Air, and it's absolutely terrific. Charlotte's gorgeous breathy voice and some tremendous music from the Air boys make for a great combination, and the songs don't disappoint.

Tracks such as "The Songs We Sing" are as good as anything I've heard this year, and anything on "Moon Safari". There are one or two that aren't quite as compelling ("Beauty Mark") but overall this is an album I'm delighted to have come across!!

This is a first for me: never before have I bought an album purely on the strength of Amazon reviews alone, but this is unquestionably a success for Amazon reviews since the album is sensationally good.

However, if you're looking for vocal pyrotechnics, look elsewhere - Charlotte Gainsbourg has inherited from her mother a breathy, dreamy voice, sometimes barely above a whisper. But her style is suited by the material to a tee. The music of Air has the same ethereal, unearthly quality that transcends mere chillout and transports the listener to another time and place. The stand out track for me is Everything I Cannot See - a haunting melody that stayed in my head for hours afterwards.

It is a thing of great beauty, maybe too laid back for its own good, but the delicate piano rhythms and Gainsbourg's voice work for the most part to perfection. To my wife, the more commercial side reminded her to some degree of Dido, though many other fine female singers may also spring to mind. I wonder how well Ms Gainsbourg would perform with jazz material, too. A fine debut album, promising much for her future career.

Got this album more out of curiosity than anything else after being a fan of her fathers work, however was very pleasantly surprised. Easy to listen to, and the tracks grow the more you hear them. Melancholy and electronic, yet timeless - this is a brilliant album, perfect for autumn as the nights draw in. Highly recommended

Wow this is incredible. Being a massive fan of air and the divine comedy I knew it would be good but I wasn't expecting it to be this good. I think its probably the best thing air have ever done and thats saying something. It sounds like a classic air album with all the synths and bleeps. Becks Dad also provides the string sections. Buy now you wont regret it.
